I meeting with the Deputy Executive Director of Programs at the Ali Forney Center tomorrow to discuss the organization's treatment of transgender clients.

For those of you don’t know, not long after my father, who I was living with at the time, found out I was transitioning, I became homeless. I crashed on the couch of a friend for a couple weeks, then took an 11-hour train trip to New York City, where…

This is all remarkably inaccurate. I work for the organization and I’ve found there are more trans and queer identifying staff members than cis staff members. Also Sylvia’s Place lost their license after several charges of neglecting clients and facilities were made. I know that losing licensure is REALLY difficult to do in NYC. Like the walls basically have to be caving in to lose your accreditation and now no other agencies can refer clients there because of this, and vice versa. I am beyond proud to work for such a great organization.

How to make your very own I Don’t Suck file:
It can be general or specific—A lot of my clients make general files with notes from loved ones or former students/clients/bosses of theirs or other supports. Or magazine clippings that remind them of goals or qualities they have. I am currently making one that is therapy related as a way to transition from my most recent job and prepare for my move abroad. It has notes from clients, supervisees and evaluations.
What you need: It can be as low maintenance as a file folder stuffed with notes or as high maintenance as a well-crafted scrapbook. What’s important is that you have a place to go when you need a pick-me-up.
You can gather things to build it—don’t have what you’re looking for? Start gathering!
If you have a friend or family member you trust to be supportive of you, see if they’d be willing to write you a note about what they like about you.
Next time you’re looking at a magazine or reading a blog and see something that resonates with you—save it for your file. Truth resonates, and you can’t recognize something that you don’t have, so if there is something you read or see that you admire and relate to, there’s something of you that’s in it.
Write yourself some affirmations when you’re feeling good—make your own or use song lyrics or quotes.
